The ingredients of happiness are so simple that they can be counted on one hand. Happiness comes from within, and rests most securely on simple goodness and clear conscience. - William Ogden


Laurel’s Kitchen 

By chance, a friend found a cookbook named “Laurel’s Kitchen”.

The serendipity of this discovery gave me pause to reflect about my life. 

Just what are the ingredients, when put together,

which will create a delectable and scrumptious dish?

What ought to be added and what are the exact measurements?

How does it all get kneaded together?

Should I let the mixture sit undisturbed so that

everything blends and finds its balance?

How long will it take to cook up this perfect recipe?

And, when tasting my concoction, will I remember to

stop and relish what feeds my heart and enriches my spirit. 

I have come to appreciate that life does not come with a cookbook.

In stillness and gratitude, I now understand that being alive brings the possibility of a new recipe each and every day.

That is the reality of “Laurel’s Kitchen”!
